18 December 2023

Partner and head of Gowling WLG's Capital Markets and Natural Resources (UK) teams, Charles Bond, has been recognised among Business Today's select Top 10 Influential AIM Capital Market Lawyers for 2023.

Business Today has released its latest curated list, honouring the "Industry heavies" that play a crucial role in steering businesses through economic complexities and the dynamic realm of capital markets.

As a prominent figure in the legal landscape, Charles Bond has secured his place in this exclusive list for his exceptional contributions to AIM. Charles is recognised for his leading role advising clients on "acquisitions and fundraising for Latin America and African mining projects", and his "key insights into AIM market listings and delistings that his clients benefit greatly from."

Business Today's acknowledgment recognises Charles' commitment to delivering tailored legal solutions that have enabled key clients to navigate the challenges of the ever-evolving capital market.

This latest accolade follows further individual success this year after Charles was named a 'Hall of Fame' lawyer for Equity Capital Markets and a 'Leading Individual' for Mining and Minerals by The Legal 500 in their UK 2024 rankings. He is also recognised as a leading lawyer for 'Capital Markets: AIM' and 'Mining: International' by Chambers & Partners in their UK 2024 directory listings, and Who's Who Legal Mining.

Charles is one of the partners in Gowling WLG's long-established Capital Markets and Investment Funds teams, which have an extensive track record advising issuers and their sponsors, financial advisers, nominated advisers and brokers on IPOs and secondary fundraises. Ranking among the top-tier law firms for total number of stock market clients (Main Market and AIM), the teams have consistently been ranked as a leading AIM market adviser, both by a number of clients and market capitalisation, and are particularly noted for their international experience and comprehensive offering.

As part of the firm's wider growth strategy in key global markets, Gowling WLG expanded its Capital Markets team in Germany early this year, with a team headed up by Dr. Lars-Gerrit Lüßmann and Ulrich Reers in Frankfurt.
